Life at the Home20

Life at the Home20 - Genealogy: "This research began in 1986. It covers both my family and my husband's. Amazingly, we are both, so far, from southern families (Delaware and down) who originated mostly from the British isles. We were each told we have an American Indian line but neither can be proven at this point. Both families have been traced back several generations on most lines and there is but one line from France (tradition, but no proof) and no lines going back to Germany or Eastern Europe (although my grandmother swore otherwise). There is one possible Scandinavian line but I base that theory on the fact that the surname ends in 'son', no other reason. So while I ponder a few brick walls, I will try to share my findings here."
